Trearddur Timelapse #1

The story behind this video

An afternoon spent exploring the beauties of the coastline of Anglesey, North Wales ended close to sunset by the side of the road overlooking this little cove just outside Trearddur Bay.

Looking for a spot to shoot a time lapse of clouds over the coast at sunset, I was drawn to this view thanks to the lovely curving sweep of the shoreline, the bounding cliffs and the perfectly placed rocky island just offshore, surrounded by the sea at high tide.

The sky didn't diappoint either, with dramatic clouds sweeping by, glowing with colour as they caught the light of the setting sun.

The lightshow only lasted half an hour, by which time I was chilled by the stiff breeze and ready for a cup of tea before the drive home.

What a lovely spot, and one I'll be returning to again, I've no doubt.
